3 Ways to Style Burgundy Jeans: Denim Jacket + Slide Loafers
I’ve styled these jeans with a blush open poncho and with a black cowl neck sweater, so for this post I decided to wear them with a denim jacket for something a little different.
I love, love, love this denim jacket. It has such a great shape to it. It hardly ever goes on sale, but it is 30% off right now! FYI, the white one is on sale too. For size reference, I have a medium so it’s TTS or if you’re in between, you may want to size up.
I first tried this outfit with a white tee, and I felt like it was too stark against the darker jacket and jeans so I opted for a black tee. Sometimes I wear this outfit without the jacket because it’s been so warm here lately. Because the colors are dark, it still has a fall look, but it’s comfortable enough for this heat wave.
I love the shape and fit of this tee. I’ve got a white one as well. The black is temporarily out of stock, but she still has white and grey. You can get 10% off with code Jolynne10. These run small so I recommend sizing up one. I have the medium.
My jeans have sold out, but if you’re a NYDJ fan, the Ami skinnies are 30% off at Nordstrom. Their deep currant is a nice shade of burgundy, and they have a bunch of other colors as well. The Kut from the Kloth Donna is a good option too.
SALE ALERT >> Nordstrom is running a Triple Points event PLUS there’s a lot of price matching going on right now, so you can get some nice sale prices plus Triple Points if you’re a Nordstrom Rewards member.
For anyone taking Adore Your Wardrobe, my body type is short-waisted curvy so skinny jeans are part of my recommended pants styles, but I know a lot of people are looking for straight leg or bootcut options. I asked for some recommendations in the AYW alumni group, and I was told about these bootcut jeans at QVC. They come in burgundy, chestnut, and black. Also, NYDJ makes a straight leg jean in burgundy that is 30% off at Nordstrom right now, and JCP has a straight leg pair by St. John’s Bay. I hope that’s helpful!
While I like the combination of the burgundy jeans with the black top and denim jacket, what excites me most about this outfit is the shoes.
I’ve been wanting some loafer mules, and I’ve tried several styles without much luck. Either they don’t stay on my feet or they cost more than I want to pay, but when I was at the mall earlier this week, I discovered this pair by Rebecca Minkoff. The minute I slipped my feet into them, I knew they were exactly what I’ve been looking for.
They are super comfortable inside, and they stay on my feet when I walk. Happy day! Plus I really love the styling. They have the more minimalistic style that I like — not too preppy but not too plain either.
The only drawback is that they’re suede so I can’t wear them in inclement weather, but with the open back I probably wouldn’t anyway. For size reference, they run big. You can size down at least a half size.
Unfortunately availability is limited. They’re carried by a few different retailers, but the best price is at Nordstrom. Plus with their Triple Points event going on, that’s the best place to get them. If they don’t have your size online and you want a pair, call your store and they may be able to find them for you. They’re also at Shopbop, Neimans, and RM.com.
I accessorized with this Lucky Brand layer necklace. I love the layering trend but find it overwhelming to put things together on my own, so I love it when necklaces come already layered like this. You can also take off one or both of the two lower pendants if you want a different look. This necklace does get tangled easily — not when wearing it, but if you lay it down somewhere, so I am diligent about keeping it hung up in my room.
I carried a black satchel with silver hardware so I went with a silver bracelet. My necklace and earrings have both silver and gold, which I love because then I can wear either metal elsewhere in the outfit.
This Rebecca Minkoff satchel is from last year, but her unlined whipstitch hobo is a great choice if you’re in the market for a go-to black bag. The similar one from the #NSale is 50% off right now but only available in the moss green. They had the black earlier this week so keep an eye on that. They may get a return.
I hope this mini-series on various ways to style burgundy jeans has been helpful and shows you how versatile they can be.
